PowerSchool (NYSE: PWSC), the leading provider of cloud-based software for K-12 education in North America, today announced that the Kenton County School District (KCSD) in Fort Wright , Kentucky, selected PowerSchool+Unified+Classroom%26reg%3B+Schoology+Learning as the primary Learning Management System (LMS), replacing Google Classroom*, while integrating with tools like Google Drive*. KCSD has particularly benefited from the integration of Schoology Learning with the district’s existing system PowerSchool+Unified+Classroom%26reg%3B+Performance+Mattersas well as the platform’s ability to show mastery of student standards on its common assessments, provide an age-appropriate interface for all learners (K-12) and as a design-centric hub enabling easier maintenance and management of lessons and other learning materials.
“PowerSchool’s unified classroom solutions have improved our teaching and made it much more efficient,” said Joe Chavez, Director of Instructional Technology, Kenton County School District. “With Schoology Learning and Performance Matters, we now have a unified solution center that gives our teachers increased visibility into student performance, allowing them to make real-time adjustments to improve learning outcomes. ‘learning. We are excited to see how we will grow as a district using these two tools and believe they will lead to a bright future for the Kenton County School District.
Prior to choosing PowerSchool, KCSD was looking for an LMS to replace Google Classroom* that could host all aspects of learning in a connected environment, as well as an assessment solution to complement the LMS. At the time, KCSD teachers moved back and forth between Google Classroom*, various assessment tools, and spreadsheets to manage assessment data, often encountering operational difficulties due to the considerable time and effort required to manually facilitate all data. Additionally, data collection across the various tools used by the district did not meet student needs or provide the high level of service the district expected from staff and students, causing the district to turn to another educational technology provider.
Since integrating PowerSchool’s Unified Classroom® solution into their operations, KCSD staff have improved their integrated teaching and learning capabilities. Through Schoology Learning and Performance Matters in particular, KCSD has been able to identify more gaps in student learning, provide staff with real-time insights into student performance, and enable all stakeholders of KCSD to have a better visibility on the performances of the pupils.
“We are excited to provide the Kenton County School District with integrated educational technology solutions to save them time, provide the best district-level solutions, and accelerate academic gains through personalized learning,” said Maulik Datanwala, Chief Operating Officer, PowerSchool. “By leveraging these solutions to address learning gaps, Kenton County has been able to move toward greater overall district success.”
KCSD is located in Fort Wright, Kentucky and is the fifth largest school district in the state. The district serves more than 14,000 Kenton County students and operates in 17 schools.
